Adoption Process

  1. If you live in the Southern California area, please e-mail volunteer Nancy Smith at to request an application.
  2. Please answer all questions and return your completed application to Nancy.
  3. After we receive your application, you will be contacted to arrange for a volunteer to visit your home.
  4. We will check your references and contact you to arrange for you to meet one (or more) of the dogs if we think that one may be a perfect match for both you and the dog!

    Hi. I am interested in adopting a fox terrier as a family pet. We have 2 havanese dogs so they would need to be able to get along with others. We have 2 young girls that need a dog that can keep up with them.

    My number is 805 636 6160 and we’re located in Lompoc CA. We have a large fenced yard that would be great for playing.

      Thank you for your interest in adopting. Fox terriers are notorious for wanting to be the only dog and definitely the top dog!
      However, there are some (rare ones) who do get along….if you would like to have an application on file in case we rescue one who likes and gets along with other dogs, please contact our volunteer, Nancy Smith for an application at
